The virtual High Level SDG 14 Event “Marine Conservation: An urgent task for international development cooperation” will help to bring the ocean agenda forward and place a healthier and more resilient ocean higher on national and international political agendas.
The world will have an additional 2 billion people to feed over the next 30 years. Today the ocean makes a significant contribution to food security and nutrition, and it holds the potential to play an even bigger role in the global food system.
Due to the ongoing pandemic, the main 8th International Symposium on Gas Transfer at Water Surfaces has been postponed to 17-22 May 2022. To maintain an active community, a free online "bite-size" event will be organised on 19 May 2021.
The online event will feature:
Building on UNESCO’s efforts to advance gender equity and previous related discussions held as part of the Ocean Decade Virtual Series, Fisheries and Oceans Canada and the Canadian Commission for UNESCO, jointly with L’Oréal Canada and the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission, will host a virtual event titled “Making waves for ocean science: Empowering Women Leaders in the Ocean Decade”.
